MURRIETA, Calif. (AP) - Riverside County fire officials say a skydiver has been killed during a jump near Murrieta. Officials say the skydiver was found Wednesday night on a street in the rural La Cresta area west of Murrieta. It's not known if the skydiver's parachute had deployed or whether the person was dead when found. A fire department news release says the skydiver had departed from Skydive Elsinore at Skylark Airport.
Wingsuit fliers were doing a practice jump Wednesday leading up to a Thursday record-breaking attempt but it was not clear whether the person killed was a wingsuit flier. Taya Weiss, an organizer with the sponsoring group Raise the Sky, said one wingsuit flier was unaccounted for but that the fate of that person was not known.
